Budo Kai Martial Arts Institute

About us

Hi, my name is Rick LeClair, owner of Budo Kai Martial Arts, INC. in Leominster, MA. I want to take a moment to welcome you to our website and to say THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts for your child. I’ve taught kids martial arts classes for years and as you can imagine, I’ve seen every kind of personality you can think of in a child. Rambunctious, shy, defiant, complacent…every child is different, with special gifts to give and challenges to overcome, and I’ve seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them find their inner strength, peace, and focus.

We’ve seen ultra-shy kids burst out of their shell, ADD and ADHD kids learn how to control themselves, socially awkward kids learn how to make and keep friends, and even helped special needs children find a place to fit in and feel accepted. So, what I’ll do on this page is tell you a little about what our focus is in our classes, and what methods we use to achieve our results. Take a look at what we do, and see if our philosophy on the Martial Arts mat lines up with your goals as a parent, and if what we teach would be beneficial in your child’s life. Again, THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts – it was literally the BEST thing that ever happened to me when I was young, and I think it’s possible that it could be the same for your child.

Achieve the results you’ve always wanted

PHYSICAL STRENGTH
If you ever need to, you will absolutely be able to defend yourself physically. The Martial Arts moves you’ll learn in class will arm you with a sense of security that our students get to carry with them everywhere they go. We sincerely hope you never have to use it; but if you do, you’ll be ready.

SOARING SELF ESTEEM
One of the most important things you’ll earn in our classes is a tremendously positive sense of self. This isn’t just kid stuff. Low Self Esteem, if we’re being honest, hurts just as much, or maybe even more, as adults. You’ll be able to fend off the emotional onslaught of judgment from others, set appropriate boundaries in your work and personal life, and eventually, through conquering our Martial Arts class, know that you’ve conquered yourself.

THE ABILITY TO DEFEND YOURSELF MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY
If you ever need to, you will absolutely be able to defend yourself physically. The Martial Arts moves you’ll learn in class will arm you with a sense of security that our students get to carry with them everywhere they go. We sincerely hope you never have to use it; but if you do, you’ll be ready.

GROUP SUPPORT
The value of working through your challenges with a group of peers who are all focused on the same goals cannot be overstated. You WILL be held accountable, and this time you WILL achieve your goals. We (the instructors and other students) won’t let you shy away form the things you want to accomplish; we’ll be there every step of the way.
